Support for Cancer Patients: The Victory Center | Episode 025

Universe, what’s good?! Today’s guest is the lovely Penny McCloskey, Program Director of The Victory Center, a Toledo, Ohio-based center that provides support for cancer patients, survivors and families through free programs, classes, and support groups.

Penny shares how her life path led her to The Victory Center, an overview of services, and how The Victory Center has impacted lives. We also discuss how The Victory Center puts the FUN in fundraising. If you’re inspired to create something like The Victory Center in your area, this episode is for you! 

This episode is near and dear to my heart, as The Victory Center was my guiding light towards recovering from a breast cancer diagnosis. You’ll hear a bit on how I utilized this wonderful center in my own post-treatment experience.

This month is Breast Cancer Action Month, and one way to take action is to participate in the #KissThis4MBC and #More4MBC challenges. #KissThis4MBC: Post a selfie with this hashtag, and Novartis will donate $15 will towards Metastatic Breast Cancer organizations METAvivor and Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN). Tag three people, and let’s keep this going! #More4MBC: Post a picture of yourself and/or others doing the “Thriver Pose,” and $100 will be donated to either Metavivor, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, or Young Survival Coalition.  It’s really that easy!

We have a private group for survivors only, so please join.
